Leeds Gin Fair

Details

Leeds' very own celebration of gin.

There will be around 100 free samples of gin - and even free gin cocktail samples too - but this event is not just about quaffing booze, you'll also be taught about what you're drinking and even how to drink it, and look out for new versions of the tipple whilst celebrating the popular.

Ticket holders can expect Masterclasses from Gin experts, speakers giving entertaining talks and lots of cocktail ideas.

Alongside the free samples, speakers and classes there will be a DJ playing cool tunes, a bar with more than gin, and good grub.

Latitude Wine & Liquor Merchant, the Leeds independent, will be on hand to sell gins for visitors to take home.

This is more than just a G&T.

Begin the gin with these fab facts:

In the 1700s, the gin craze in London got so wild that, in an effort to encourage Londoners to drink beer, William Hogarth created "Gin Lane" and "Beer Street". "Beer Street" depicted scenes of affluence and wealth whereas "Gin Lane" showed images of babies being uncared for, dead bodies and drinkers pawning their possessions.

London Dry Gin does not have to be made in London - instead it relates to the flavour and style in which the gin has been made.

By law the dominant flavour in gin must be juniper but there can be any other number of botanicals in there.

Spain is the largest consumer of gin drinking more per person than anywhere else in the world.
